Vic started his working life at Edward’s Department store, Jeffery’s Hardware and Canadian Tire. With his many mechanical skills, he started his own small business, “Vic’s Small Engines”. He later shared those skills with T.R.W. and Devilbiss until his retirement.
He was an active member of St. Paul’s United Church and participated on the property committee by completing many projects and renovations throughout the church. He was instrumental in implementing the 4th Midland Cub and Scout troop through St. Paul’s United Church in 1958.
Despite his colorblindness, Vic was an avid photographer. He was a member of Midland’s Camera Club and even built his own dark room in the basement of his home. Vic shared his experience through the lens as a volunteer with Maclean Hunter Community TV. He recorded many community events including Midland Town Council meetings and the Rotary Auction. He also recorded the weekly church service at St. Paul’s and made tapes available to any of the congregation that were unable to attend the Sunday service.
In his retirement, he enjoyed woodworking completing many projects for community, family, and friends. Some of those projects are still on his work bench. Vic will be remembered as a generous and patient gentleman.
By his request, cremation has taken place and there will be no funeral service at this time.
If desired, memorial donations to St. Paul's United Church and GBGH would be appreciated.
